Picking the Kentucky Derby Scrabble style


Since we have no idea who is going to win the Kentucky Derby and any pick is as good as another, every year we just use the Scrabble pick.  We rank the horses in the order of their Scrabble score and hope that by some miracle, it actually works and we win our $100 $2 trifecta bet.  And, of course, the bragging rights when it does happen.

So without further ado, here are the Scrabble picks for this year’s Kentucky Derby.  Scrabble points are from the Scrabble Score Generator and ddds from Bodog’s Kentucky Derby odds page.

  1. Bob Black Jack (37 pts) / 50-1
  2. Recapturetheglory (28 pts) / 20-1
  3. Colonel John (23 pts) / 9-2
  4. Behindthebar (23 pts) / ?

Surprisingly, two horses with Zs in their name didn’t make the top 4.  There you go folks.  When you hit that huge superfecta, send us a tip, ok?

All the other scrabble scores after the jump, in case you want to go lowest to highest in your wager.
